Chorus:
Occupy, Occupy
We're the 99,
Reaching out, out of reach
We're told everything is fine,
Middle class, lower class,
Now we're all the same,
Mad as hell, won't give in,
To their money game.
(Last time: To their stinkin' game).

Verse 1: Woke up this morning, looked at my bank book, Saw my health care costs are a-rising, Have my choice of heat, food or doctors, Something's gotta give, you know what I'm a-losing, Houses near me facing bank foreclosure, Sorry faces work for the minimum, Sorrier faces look for employment, Can't find work despite how hard we're trying.

Verse 2: See the man he pays me by the hour, No sick time, also no vacation, Credit cards maxed out, and the fees are criminal, This glam train left me at the station, Countries in the west the same as Europe, People starving all over Africa, Tempers rising, tax breaks for rich men, Don't want a handout, just want a sliver.
